NATICK, Mass. --- The U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (SSC), locally known as Natick Labs, will hold a public meeting followed immediately by a formal public hearing on Thursday, April 17, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Public Safety Training Center, 20 East Central Street, Natick, to discuss the proposed environmental clean-up plan of soil at the T-25 Area, Building 14 and Former Building 13, and the Boiler Plant at the installation.

The meeting will formally kick-off a 30-day public comment period that will end on May 18.  Public input is important to the Army.  Community members are encouraged during this period to review the proposed clean-up plan, submit questions and concerns, and make recommendations regarding the proposed clean-up.

Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will join Army officials in answering questions and addressing any concerns the public may have.

At 8 p.m., the Army will begin a formal public hearing and comment session where comments, concerns, and preferences will be recorded and will become part of the final decision for the proposed actions.

Copies of the proposed clean-up plan will be available at the meeting. Copies are also available by calling the SSC Public Affairs Office at 508-233-5340 or at the public information repository maintained at the Morse Institute Library, 14 East Central Street, Natick.
